Samsung Electronics officially announced that it expanding its Galaxy self-repair program to nine European countries, following its successful rollout in the United States and Korea.
To recall, the South Korean tech giant initially introduced the “Samsung Self-Repair Program” in the US in August of last year and later in Korea in May of this year, providing Galaxy users with more repair options. Now, Samsung Electronics aims to extend the program’s reach to European consumers.
Users of nine European countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Spain, and Poland, will soon have the opportunity to purchase necessary parts and repair tools from authorized online platforms of professional repair companies. This will empower them to perform repairs on their Galaxy products independently.
The self-repair program will be used for smartphones from the Galaxy S20, S21, and S22 series. Users will be able to address issues with three crucial components: the display, rear cover, and charging port.
Moreover, self-repair will be available for the Galaxy Book Pro 39.6 cm (15.6 inch) series laptops. Users in Germany, Sweden, England, and Italy—countries where the product was initially released—will have access to repair a total of seven components, including the touchpad and fingerprint recognition power button.
This expansion of Samsung’s Galaxy self-repair program showcases the company’s commitment to providing users with greater flexibility and convenience in addressing device repairs.
